Madras High Court declines to prevent Rajinikanth starrer Kabali’s release


The Madras High Court today declined to prevent the release of superstar Rajinikanth-starrer “Kabali” on a petition filed by a film distribution firm looking for remuneration for misfortunes supposedly brought about by them over distribution of the actor’s past film ‘Lingaa’.

Justice MM Sundresh rejected the interim application filed by the firm, Sukra Films, declining to prevent the release of the motion picture.

The film distribution firm had yesterday filed an appeal looking for a decision to prevent the release of “Kabali” until the actor paid Rs 89 lakh, guaranteed as compensation, for losses allegedly brought about by it over ‘Lingaa’, which was released in 2014.
Petitioner R Mahaprabhu of Sukra movies had presented that Rajini-starrer “Lingaa” had bombed at the box office, in spite of confirmations given by its maker Rockline Venkatesh, the producer and the actor. “Kabali” is scheduled for release on Friday.
